Rokeby School has stepped up its efforts during the Covid-19 outbreak; alongside its established foodbank, the school has started producing PPE for frontline workers.
Deputy headteacher Emma Hobbs explained the motivation behind these gestures: “Rokeby school is currently open to our vulnerable students and children of key workers.
“Whilst at school, in addition to the curriculum, we have attempted to offset their day with positive social actions which benefit them and our community.”
This prompted the skilled design and technology department to manufacture the much-needed equipment, with students assisting by gathering the materials.
They manufactured 100 visors in one day, collected by Peter Richardson from One Source for wider distribution.
